Editor’s Notes: After reviving its Wave Rider silhouette, Mizuno has turned its attentions to the Sky Medal OG. This latest retro runner has been worked on by Patta previously and saw an OG release not too long ago. Now Japanese retailer BEAMS gets to give the model a makeover for a limited edition collaboration.
The BEAMS x Mizuno Sky Medal is part of the latter’s KAZOKU program (‘family’ in Japanese). The blue, black, and white colorblocking lends a retro vibe, while hits of red on the insole and tongue celebrate both brands’ Japanese heritage.
As is customary when it comes to sneaker collaborations, special attention is paid to the details. The tongue features a setting sun motif, while the first character from Mizuno’s Japanese name is embroidered at the base of the tongue. BEAMS branding is debossed near the heel counter and insole.
Check out the sneaker above and look out for it to drop on October 13 at BEAMS exclusively (for now). Check back for details on a potential wider release.
